I spent over three hours here, lost in thought, awwing the art, looking at tombs. It was amazing! So much so that when we got into the Duomo that was a huge let down.

If you visit any churches go here.

As has been the case in Florence regarding churches with paid tickets, it’s not worth it. If you have seen other Italian churches such as ones in Genova (which are all free) and Verona, Florentine churches will be a disappointment. There are more empty walls than frescoed ones and the overall effect is one that leaves me as a tourist who paid entry to the church wanting more. It would be one thing if it was free, but when I pay €7,50 for access, it better be worth seeing. No historical context or audio guides either. You and your wallet will be fine just seeing the outside of the church.

Beautiful basilica with frescoes that date back hundreds of years. The stain glass windows are also well done. There is much to see in the complex beyond the church itself and it is a wonderful place to go and find some quiet and rest from the Italian sun.

The church is located near the main railway station in Florence and there are lots of restaurants and shopping nearby.

If you expect that you'll just see a church and be out in 20 minutes, you are mistaken. What you get is: a beautiful church with two cloisters and a small museum. Nice frescoes and paintings everywhere, plus the first mathematical perspective painting in history!

Located in a city square piazza it is not to far from the train station. Right next to the huge Grand Hotel Minerva. We were here about 9 in the morning and the church and piazza were not crowded at all.
